Christ Church Sandown
Thank you for visiting our website. We would love to welcome you to any of our church services or events. We are gradually reactivating our church services and events and we now have children's activities during the morning service each week.
Whilst the COVID restrictions were in place we began online services and our plan is continue these alongside the physical weekly physical service which takes place on Sunday mornings at 11am.
Our physical services take place every Sunday at 11am. Family Communion services take place on the second and fourth Sunday of the month. And Sunday 3 October is our harvest festival as we celebrate and give thanks for all the good things God gives us.
We can now sing in church after what seems a very long time and the seats are generally arranged normally. However, you are very welcome to continue to wear a mask, and an area of the church has been designated for those who wish to remain socially distanced.
Each week a new online service will be available to which a link is given below. The online service will often have content which is similar to the physical service albeit with the use of some of the many worship songs we have recorded over the past year. Why not give it a try and see what you think.
If you would like to join us for an informal chat over a cup of coffee please get in touch and we can provide you with the Zoom details for this regular Friday morning event (11am).
There is a men's social event (cheese & wine party) taking place at Vicarage on Saturday 9 October. Please contact Mark if you are interested in attending.
Yes, that's right. Film night is back. The next showing is of Luca, on Saturday 2 October at 6:30pm. The film tells of a friendship between a human and a sea monster! This is an ideal film for all the family. Film nights will be held on the first Saturday of each month (previously it was on a Friday).

This position is for a church member to become part of the governing body. If this is something you feel able to be part of, please contact Rev Mark Williams or Carolyn Corbett who can give you more details on the commitment involved.
Worship at home and mid week message
Weekly Worship at Home services are being recorded and are available on the church's YouTube Channel and/or the church's Facebook page. A search on Christ Church Sandown will locate both these sources. The Worship at Home service is uploaded and available from 6pm each Saturday for you to use at the time of your choice on Sundays. The Worship at Home service includes a message, worship songs recorded by members of our worship group together with prayers and often interviews and/or special items. A mid-week message is also being recorded on the church's Facebook page and is published on Wednesdays.
We have a church email list which is used to alert everyone to the publication of videos and the latest news generally. If you would like to be kept in contact in this way please ask to be put on our mail list which Mark Williams is maintaining (click here to contact Mark for this purpose).
